To Be or Not to Be…Read TBR Pile Vote February 2018

Sophia's To Read or Not

Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books.  I would like you to vote on a choice.  Yes!  You will have the job of telling me what to read from my pile each month.  I welcome your vote no matter what reason you choose (frivolous, serious or otherwise) that particular book and do share your reason in the comments just because I’m nosy.  I will update everyone at the end of the month in my reading update and will of course share my thoughts on the book itself in my review.

I’m back to rockin’ my giveaway win pile with two favorite authors.

Candidate #1

Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh
#1 Rock Kiss
Contemporary Romance

Blurb:  A bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grown-up package might be worth a little risk…

Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.

A one-night stand with the hottest rock star on the planet, that’s all it was meant to be…

Fox promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…

Candidate #2


Good Boy by Sarina Bowen
#1 Wags
Contemporary Romance

Blurb:  Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody – absolutely nobody! – can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.

Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor, and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.

But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear.

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!


  • I voted for Good Boy as there’s a dog on the cover and I have some books by that author on my to-read list. I hope to finally get around to reading one of her books this year :).

    • Hey, that works for me, Lola. Happy to test drive it for you. 🙂

  • I voted for Rock Addiction although this was a hard choice. Both are favorite authors so I just went with the one I had already read. I am sure either would be a good read for you!

    • Yeah! I made it a tough choice, I think. But, I rather think you’re right that either would be a really good one.

  • I went with Good boy only because I haven’t read that author and want to know what you think.

  • Yes! It is so tough sometimes to settle on what I want to read. I do enjoy the vote to help me settle the choice in this instance.
    Thanks, Mary!

  • Haha! Tie broken. By another Mary, no less. 😉

  • They both sound pretty good but I vote the Rockstar 🙂

    • I am decidedly curious about how she writes contemporary after enjoying her PNR and UF. Thanks for voting!

  • I vote Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh, I’ve been wanting to try that series lol I have no clue how I went bold font but YEAH 😀

    • Okay I’m going crazy, it’s not bold anymore hahaha

      • This happened to me earlier when I was formatting a post. Suddenly, I was typing in Italics and then suddenly it returned to normal. Cra-zy!

        • Okay, glad it wasn’t just messing with me then haha

          • Nope! It was an equal opportunity gremlin in the machine. 🙂

    • Oh, me, too! Shari read them and I was hooked when I saw her reviews.

  • Greg Hill

    Ooh it’s fairly close. 🙂 I voted for Good Boy cause I like the dog on the cover lol. But it sound fun too…

    • Yes! This one’s running neck and neck. I guess that means that either will be a good one.
      Oh yes, the dog scene is so cute. 🙂

  • Both great choices. I have read Rock Addiction and LOVED it so I chose that one. But you also can’t go wrong with Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy either.

    • LOL, yes, this month was a tough pick, I think. I’ve enjoyed both authors/pairs, but I’ve not read any of Singh’s contemporaries so I’m curious if I’ll like them as much as her PNR. Thanks for voting, Renee!

  • I picked Good Boy, because of the humor. I could use a good laugh these days! I hope you enjoy whichever you read! 🙂

    • Yes! Sometimes we need a bit of humor to liven things up. Thanks, Candy!

  • I haven’t tried either of these series, but I love Nalini Singh. I need to try this series by her.

    • Oh man, I adore both her PNR/UF series so I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy anything she writes. 🙂 I’m super curious though about this rocker series.

  • shootingstarsmag

    I voted for Good Boy – I haven’t read it, but I DID read Him and Us and loved those. 🙂


    • Oh yes, I loved Him and others by them as separate authors. I still need to read Us- this year. 🙂 I’m hoping to love on Good Boy as much as Him. 🙂

  • I tired a Nalini Singh book a couple of years ago and her writing style didn’t seem for me but I still want to try again 🙂

    • Hey, it can happen, Daniela! I’ve had bestselling authors just not be a good match for my reading taste. But, I’m glad you’re willing to give her another go in case it was a mood thing or something about that particular story (had that happen to me, too). 😉
